Tuleyome is hosting an OVERNIGHT astronomy event at EcoCamp Berryessa on the north shore of Lake Berryessa. Come spend the evening with us and Dr. Dan Phillips viewing and learning about our solar system and beyond. Telescopes will be available to get an up-close (relatively) view of the moon, stars, planets, nebula, and more. Participants are welcome to get to EcoCamp Berryessa as early as 3:00 pm on Saturday, May 6 to enjoy the lake or hike around EcoCamp Berryessa. Dinner will NOT be provided. Viewing will begin when it is dark enough to view objects and s’mores will be available. Tuleyome will provide breakfast on Sunday morning.
